of people who are, frankly, either evil or crazy. >> glor: the nra says existing gun laws are not being enforced. orgaret brennan has more on what the group would change, and the reaction. >> reporter: the nra is arguing for the creation of a national database of the mentally ill to prevent them from buying weapons. the nra is also lobbying to put armed guards or police in e hools. >> itsive vice president wayne lapierre. >> if it's crazy to call for putting police and armed security in our schools to protect our children, then call me crazy. i'll tell you what the american people-- i think the american people think it's crazy not to do it. gun control laws. in a cbs news poll conducted after the fatal newtown shooting, 57% of americans said that gun control laws should be more strict. that's the highest level of support in a decade. and may provide renewed support for politicians willing to challenge the powerful nra lobby. >> new york senator chuck schumer criticized the nra vice president's argument that any attempt at gun restrictions is bound to fail. >> well, i think he's so extre

[over stalk ] >> bob: now you the debt ceiling. >> andrea: i want to get in here. you talk about the debt ceiling. i thought it was raised in february. isn't it suspect that all of a sudden turbo tax timmy puts out a letter saying with i'll hit the debt ceiling? if we go off the cliff, guess what that means? more revenue. credit rating agencies only care about revenue. we are likely to be just fine if we go off the cliff. >> bob: you said in the opening here. of course it

under federal law to notify the legislative branch that, fact, they are going to come up against the deadline, precisely why it is -- >> uses the phrase default. we are not going -- the u.s. government isn't going pay its debts. we are going to be like greece. that was -- everybody -- both sides, by the way, republicans and democrats, both used the phrase default. you know perfectly well how it works in the government. you can make choices. >> i hate to break the news to you but -- i don't think anyone other than watching cnbc anyone actually cares and nobody believes the federal government will not pay social security or other debts. >> are you kidding me? i think they do. that's what they start with. right? start with the social security checks aren't going to go out. then -- what do people do, call their congressmen? the elderly get frightened. they think they won't have their weekly paychecks. >> this would not be the first time anyone from the executive branch tried to scare senior sit sense what do we do? we are going over the cliff. do you think we are going over cliff? >>
there is no justification for the law treating people differently because of sexual orientation >> are you ready to make the shift? are you ready to be inclusive? yes. i used to say don't come out of the closet, clean those closets! i mean i thundered it from the pulpit. part of it was fear, alot of it was ignorance. bishop carlton pearson preaches a controversial gospel of inclusion to members of his church -- new dimensions chicago. he says his views on "homosexuality" started to shift... when a close friend came out. you gotta love everybody. pearson was one of more than 250 religious leaders...who signed on to this open letter. in support of house bill 51-70: the religious freedom and marriage fairness act. it's just right that everyone have the same tax right, same right to visit people in the hospital - their partners, their husbands their wives. this is the right thing to do.. state rep. greg harris sponsored the bill. he hopes it will come up for a vote in springfield before new lawmakers are sworn in on january ninth. i'm so glad there are hundreds of men, pastors, and rabbis who've said the
. they're two very different things. nra members want commonsense gun laws. the washington leadership fights very hard against them. you're going to see that rift widening after today's weird performance. >> here's a bit what was he said from his news conference today, wayne lapierre. i called congress to act immediately to appropriate whatever is necessary to put armed police officers in every single school in this nation and to do it now to make sure that blanket safety is in place when our kids return to school in january. is there any research or evidence that in fact arming security guards, arming teachers, arming administrators, would be an effective solution here? >> no. there's no research that says that putting more firearms in the hands of trained or untrained professionals in a shoot-out is going to make anybody who's sitting around safer. but there's lots of evidence that it won't. let me tell you a couple things. first of all, in my home state of colorado, at columbine there was a deputy sheriff there, there was another security guard nearby, they were not able to stop wh
ban better, any more effective? >> you want one more law on top of 20,000 laws. most of the federal gun laws we don't even adhere to. >> the other big story in washington, nine days until the fiscal cliff and no deal in sight with the president and congress home for the holidays, today key senators from both sides weigh in on the prospects of ayn greem before new year's. >> you know, if you look at the final positions last monday of both the president and speaker boehner, they were this close. they were this close to a solution. >> if he were to say and the president were to say we're going to pass a bill, with a majority of democrats and majority of republicans in the house and senate, we could get a mainstream bill. >> if you want leaders, you have to lead. the president's been a pathetic fiscal leader. he's produced three budgets and can't get one vote for any of them. boehner will be tip o'neill, obama needs to be reagan. i would vote for revenues including tax rate hikes, even though i don't like them, to stave country from becoming greece. >> today, despite the president being
. will you oppose as the national rifle association any attempt to time the gun laws, to do what even the international association of police chiefs says is a good idea, to ban these military-style assault weapons? will you oppose that? will you continue to oppose that? >> we will continue to oppose a ban on semiautomatic weapons that are used for perfectly legitimate purposes. these aren't military weapons. if we equipped our army with the ar-15 we'd be beaten by every third world-- you know, every third world dictatorship in the country. military weapons fully automatic weapons and that's illegal. you don't get those. that's not what we're talking about. the impression often is, bob, that is what we're talking about, but it isn't. we're talking about sporting arms-- you know the ar-15 is the highest selling-- >> schieffer: how many rounds can these weapons discharge, say, in five seconds? >> well, they fire when you put trigger. >> schieffer: sure and they keep firing. >> just as your shotgun-- not your shotgun bout most shotguns do. >> they don't keep firing. that's a fully automat
to this crisis. we're talking about the fiscal cliff. >> it hasn't got ensigned into law. there's no success yet there. >> boehner should move it tomorrow. he should just do that. >> jonathan? >> listen, the president campaigned on a three to one spending reduction and we're not see anything spending here. democrats controlled two-thirds of the chips. >> joy ann, why is this all about taxes? >> one reelection and the -- it doesn't do that much spending. >> it's been all about taxes. >> all about raising taxes. >> there's this obsession with raising taxes. >> it was to go after school lunches and elderly care, health care for poor kids and increased spending. >> no, no, no, they want entitlement reform, joy ann. why this obsession with cutting old people's medicare? >> it's not an obsession about cutting benefits to the elderly, joy ann. it's about reforming medicare over time so at some point in the future we don't tell an 80-year-old you know what? you're not going get the medicare cha you thought you would have. this is about not hurting the elderly. >> the republican solution is to hand 80-ye
. >> in ten days we face a deadline. in ten days under current law, tax rates are scheduled to rise on most americans. and even though democrats and republicans are arguing about whether those rates should go up for the wealthiest individuals, all of us, every single one of us agrees that tax rates shouldn't go up for the other 98% of americans, which includes 97% of small businesses. >> let's check in now with cnn's emily schmitt in washington. the president made this surprise late appearance yesterday. he urged republicans to approve, i guess what you might consider a stripped down deal. this all happened around dinner time. so a lot of folks might not have seen it. give us the details. what is he proposing? >> well, i have to tell you, a few minutes ago, president obama landed in hawaii, 72 degrees there was the temperature on the ground. certainly warmer than it is in washington, certainly warmer than the political climate that president obama left behind here here in washington. it was a strip down agreement. he basically is saying we have to come up with some solution to help the majo
or anybody else for that matter. there is a law that goes into effect in ten days that raises taxes on millionaires, small businesses filing as millionaires and everybody else. boehner's bill tried to stop that for everybody else. offa lifeguard sees ten swimmers drowning off of his beach and can only reach nine of them to save them, it doesn't mean that he's drowned the tenth one. all in nonsense somehow boehner was trying to raise taxes is just that, nonsense. >> your point is if you are anti-tax, vote for this bill. >> he was trying to stop a massive tax increase and unfortunately, some of my colleagues didn't see it that way. >> how bad is it up there? americans look at what's happening in washington right now and want both sides to get to work. i know it can be very collegial up there but in these meetings behind closed doors, what's the atmosphere like? >> miguel, bad process creates bad policy. and what we're watching today is extraordinarily bad process. for example, the president is not supposed to be part of the negotiations of the legislative branch. he is a separate bran
's not the nominee to begin with. >> rush limbaugh did call a law student a slut and a prostitute for wanting to have insurance covered for her contraception. i presume you wouldn't view what as absurd or entertaining, you'd view that as pretty offensive. >> of course not. of course, as i said before. i want to spend my time talking about how we can grow the economy. what i'd like to talk about which is offensive, which is governor romney out there for almost a year telling the people in the republican primary that he never advocated that romneycare would be a federal model, that he never advocated for an individual mandate that government at the federal level require people to buy insurance. now we find on several occasions just in the past week article after article, interview after interview where governor romney did just that in 2009. now, to me that's offensive. >> is he a liar then? >> well, this goes to the snobbish issue, which is he clearly did not tell the truth, that you don't necessarily go and, you know, accuse the person on a personal level, you describe the action. i did and i accurate
to washington and have it pass both chambers. i will immediately sign that legislation into law before january 1 of next year. >> congresswoman, with time running out, can the house come back after christmas and pass a bill, any bill to avoid the fiscal cliff? >> well, alex, i'm one of the vote counters for the democrats. i sent a letter to speaker boehner yesterday. you need to you a ban don the idea that you have to have a majority of the majority to pass legislation. in other words, speaker boehner said here's my plan. and forget you, democrats, and i'm just going to pass it with my caucus and then -- his tea party rebelled against him. what i think he should do, come to the democratic leadership, put together a coalition in the middle, moderate republicans, moderate democrats, and we could come to an agreement and we could pass it. this idea that -- >> where might that agreement come? i'm going to ask my director to put up we have would full screens on the basics. where there are areas that could be discussed for some level of commonality. where do you think that might come, that compromise?
. >>> pass new gun laws or set up more armed protections at our schools and public places? that seems to be one of the big debates in america this evening. let's bring back our panel, and we welcome nan hayworth. let's start with the nra they want armed guards in the schools. what's your take? >> well, larry, this is -- we are still reeling from a hideous event. so there are going to be a lot of ideas that from every segment of our society that people are going to have. i think your point is very well taken about the value of faith. whatever someone's faith may be, and family-based faith, as well. because if we can as a culture be mindful that there are -- there are people and there are interests and there's a society outside our own heads. i think the video games play into that because people have become young people and these are young men who do these. they're deeply disturbed, but there is a cultural milieu that contributes, i think, to that sense that somehow they feel they can go out and be destructive, by whatever means. and as we know -- >> katie, a cultural milieu, an interes
of gun laws in the world. when looking internationally, it is obvious that the one feature of america that would explain why we have so much more gun violence than the rest of the world is that we have incredibly permissive laws allowing the sale and possession of guns. with 5% of the world's population, we have 50% of the world's guns. we also have evidence that tightening laws, even in high videoistic countries with traditions of gun ownership, can and does reduce gun violence. in australia after a 1996 ban on all automatic and semiautomatic weapons, a real ban, not like the one we did in 1994 which had 600 plus exemptions, after that ban, gun-related homicides dropped by 59% over the next decade. all the evidence points in the same direction. there will always be evil or disturbed people and they might be influenced by some violent popular culture. but how is the government going to identify the darkest thoughts in people's minds before they do anything? what government can do easily, however, is make it much harder for these people to have access to guns. a few hours before the ne
, the nra, making it clear today its opposition to any new gun laws in the wake of the connecticut shooting. on nbc's "meet the press" the group's ceo stood by remarks he made at an event on friday in which he argued for armed guards in school. >> if it's crazy to call for putting police and armed security in our school to protect our children, then call me crazy. i'll tell you what the american people, i think the american people think it's crazy not to do it. it's the one thing that would keep people safe, and the nra is going to try to do that. >> but democratic senator charles schumer wasn't buying the single solution approach. >> we have to look at a holistic solution. we cannot just make the new normal one of these mass shootings every month, and that seems to be what's happening. so we should try all kinds of different things. >> it was a debate at the center of all the sunday morning talk shows with both sides making their case. cnn's barbara stahr following the story from washington. hello to you. what's the case that the nra is making right now? >> well, look, you know, wane la pi
particular thing were to happen. >> if the law were to change, we would follow the law. >> gary tuchman, cnn. >> how do you comfort moms and dads whose first graders were murdered? what do you say to the boyfriend going to propose on christmas eve to the woman he loved or the husband who didn't expect to outlive his wife? it has been an overwhelming week for the virtual leaders of newtown. monsignor robert weiss has conducted six funerals in four days alone. he joins me ahead. restore revive rejuvenate rebuild rebuild rebuild [ bells tolling ] >>> one bell rang this morning for each of the victims of the massacre. we just saw five of the children who lost their lives in the shooting one week ago. we want to show you a picture now from the oval office this morning that we just got. president obama pausing during a meeting at 9:30 a.m. for a moment of silence for the victims of the shooting. it was appropriate that it was raining when it marked the moment that 26 lives were taken at that school. it sadly was that kind of day, bleak. what happened seven days ago has produced heartbreak beyond m

with the intention to do wrong can't buy guns in america. so changing the laws make people face up. >> in the end, it's about the guns because without the guns you don't have the shooting. this particular weapon, the ar-15 assault weapon has been used in the last three mass shootings, in aurora, in the shopping mall, and now in the elementary school. you have been in war zones all over the world. it's near to an m-16 machine gun, a rifle, as you can get, isn't it? >> it is. i can visualize the state of affairs in the classrooms because i have seen that in somalia, what is going on in syria right now, and it is about those particular weapons. i look out and realize that two years ago, i conducted a town hall just like this in the aftermath of the shooting of congresswoman gabrielle giffords and the killing of those people around her in tucson, some of the same people who were there are here today. victims, families, all people crying out for at least at the very least, a dialogue, a sensible, rational conversation, a national discussion where we're not afraid to call it like it is. and that means to b
and at this time we were gifted with our law enforcement partners volunteering their time to have our officers spend time with their families. i know that on behalf of all of the men and women of the newtown police department we are eter l eternally grateful for their support and contributions today. >> you know, nobody could even imagine what the first responders and the officers went through, what they saw inside of that school. how are they coping today? what are you doing to help them in the community? >> besides giving them a day off, encouraging them to be with their families and go to religious services and to certainly reach out to their friends and neighbors so they feel a sense of love and hope. >> is there a sense of how this community, how your community and your own family can recover if that is possible to how you move forward? well, we certainly are going to move forward, suzanne. we have several memorials in our community. many are luminaries. our plan for the future is to gather all those gifts and those memorials and to eventually use them in some way to make this very large

, get it passed by the house and the senate and signed into law by the president. we're talking a long shot here. now, want to show you the players. president, there in the middle, democrats nancy pelosi and harry reid. republicans mitch mcconnell and john boehner. those four members of congress are expected to make the drive from the capital, which you see on the right, down pennsylvania avenue, to the white house, there on the left. and we expect them to enter through a side door on the west side of the mansion. that's the entrance right there. and they'll meet with the president. in the oval office. beginning, we're told, at 3:00 p.m., less than one hour from now. and just four days ahead of the so-called fiscal cliff. so a very big moment in the nation's capital. and to walk us through what might happen we turn to jessica yellin, a chief white house correspondent. jessica, we said up front, it is a long shot, give us a best case scenario. >> reporter: the best case scenario would be that all the leaders walk out of this meeting and say they have a deal. the two senators say they ca
adjudicated mentally incompetent by a court of law should be prevented from owning guns. as discussions continue in the weeks ahead, and i know they will, we're going to have many, many discussions in the weeks ahead, we'll take our responsible place at any gathering that seeks meaningful solutions in this country as long as they do not erode even a little bit the freedoms this association exists to protect. >> that was as far as they have ever been willing to go in the past. that was when wayne lapierre at the nra conference in 1999, not two weeks after the columbine shootings. that is what they said was their meaningful contribution back then to support something that was already the law. this is what the nra does, puts the blame on everyone and every thing other than the one thing they do not want to talk about, which is guns. joining us now is councilman ricky burgess from the ninth district, which includes homewood, an area that has had more than its share of lives lost to gun violence. we visited last may when the nra held its annual convention in his hometown of pittsburgh. counc
couples facing a higher tax burden. the bush-era tax law which eliminated the so-called marriage penalty for joint filers is expiring, meaning with couples with next as little as $80,000 would be subject to taxation at the rate of the higher earning spouse. a nationwide survey done byic which chick chicago-based northern trust, yes, they've been more proactive in planning for the cliff versus those with $1 million or less and finally, that same survey had 44% of high net worth individuals saying their top priority for the country is economic growth and reducing unemployment versus 19% for reducing the federal budget deficit. tax reform and to end the washington gridlock is also on the wish list, michelle. >> mine, too. >> thanks, hampton. >>> once again, the big story tonight, no fiscal cliff deal and not even a new offer from the white house. three days to go. president obama asked the senate leaders to try to make a deal. we'll get more on all of it from washington next. so, this board gives me rates for progressive direct and other car insurance companies? yes. but you're progressive,
by law to temporarily postpone the date that the united states would otherwise default on its legal obligations. there is wiggle room. that is equivalent to two months of borrowing. >>> now to the other financial crisis that could mean higher taxes for all of us. will congress send the country over the fiscal cliff or will they come up with some sort of deal and hit the brakes? the senate returned today hopefully to come up with some kind of deal. dana bash is flling this on capitol hill. i imagine we're all working over the holidays and i fess we're going to be working as long as they are working. hopefully they're going to get something done. we heard from house speaker john boehner earlier today. where is this? clearly it looks like now it's in the senate's hands. >> that's right. it is absolutely in the senate's handings, has been effectively since the house speaker failed to pass his so-called plan b proposal last week. and so what is going on behind the scenes right now, suzanne, is the senate democratic leader is trying to figure out if he can cobable together enough votes, w

's got no chance whatsoever of becoming law, end quote. that's what i said back on july 25th. the only reason we ever allowed that vote on that proposal, as i said at that time, was that we knew it didn't pass constitutional muster and that democrats were really serious they would proceed to a revenue bill that originated in the house, as the constitution requires, and as i called on them to do again last week. to repeat, the so-called senate bill is nothing more than a glorified sense of the senate resolution so let's put that convenient talking point aside from here on out. last night i told the president we'd be happy to look at whatever he proposes, but the truth is we're coming up against a hard deadline here, and as i said this is a conversation we should have had months ago. and republicans aren't about to write a blank check for anything senate democrats put forward just because we find ourselves at the edge of the cliff. that wouldn't be fair to the american people. that having been said, we'll see what the president has to propose. members on both sides of the aisle will revi

causes people to drive more. there's something called the fundamental law of traffic congestion that establishes that vehicle miles traveled increase roughly one for one with highway miles built. if you build it, they will drive, okay? the only way to make sure that our city streets are moved sufficiently is to charge people for it, to actually do what singapore does, second densest country in the world, and yet you can drive around it effortlylessly because they have that electronic road pricing thing that charges you for using these streets. america's cities are running, essentially, a soviet-style urban transit policy. they used to have grocery stores that would give away eggs and butter at far below market prices, the result was you couldn't get the goods. that's what we do with our city streets. they're a valuable commodity, and as a result, they're the urban equivalent of long lines which are traffic jams. there's no path other than actually making people pay for the cost of their actions. now, we already, of course, pay plenty, and one of the enduring challenges of cities
